An aspiring actress stands on the 50 foot H, looking out at the lights of Los Angeles and the Dream Factory known as Hollywood. It is 1949: Truman is President, Marilyn Monroe is a little known model who poses nude for an art calendar in order to recover her impounded car, and nobody has ever heard of Evie Edwards...
Charting over 30 years of the Golden Age of Hollywood, including stories from the Silent Era, the Great Depression and World War II, this solo show takes audiences on a nostalgic journey – with a different perspective.
The Girl Who Jumped Off The Hollywood Sign includes songs composed for cinema’s greatest stars - Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe, Jean Harlow and more.
Joanne Hartstone is Evie Edwards - the girl who has only ever wanted one thing: to be a star.
